Commonly treated conditions include delirium, dementia, depression, suicide attempts, capacity evaluations, agitation management, altered mental status, conversion disorder, addictions, and somatoform disorders. The sub-intern will become an integral part of the team, with assigned primary focus on the care of a discrete set of patients, and will be directly supervised by fellows and attendings. A practical focus on areas of special interest to the student may be arranged.
